Korean singer and actress Nam Gyu-ri [Eyagi Entertainment]
Korean singer and actress Nam Gyu-ri will be taking to the singing stage after a two year hiatus from music, according to her agency Eyagi Entertainment on Tuesday.
A press release from Eyagi announced that Nam was invited to perform at the six-day Korea-China Cultural Exchange Festival in Xining, China, which kicked off yesterday, where she will sing three songs including "Flying in the Deep Night" and "Bicycle Comes Through My Heart" on August 19.
"Nam Gyu-ri is excited about taking to the stage and she has been visiting the recording studio to rehearse for her performance in between her drama shoots", an official from Eyagi was quoted as saying.
Four-member ballad boy band 2AM and other Chinese artists will also be performing at the cultural festival.
Nam, 25, made her debut in 2006 as the leader of female trio SeeYa but left the band in April 2009 after her contract with her former agency ended.
She pursued a solo career thereafter, appearing in several films and dramas with her most notable acting role in 2008 horror film "Death Bell" alongside Korean actor Kim Bum.
Nam is currently playing the role of Yang Cho-rong in the SBS weekend family drama "Life is Beautiful".
